Specializing in ship’s wooden masts and spars, as well as custom columns and poles

Our 10,000-square-foot drive-through shop is one of a kind, featuring the largest tracer-lathe in North America. We can turn logs up to 40 inches in diameter and 122 feet in length. With our two sawmills, we can mill logs as large as six feet in diameter, and create timbers as long as 100 feet or more. Our Job Shop offers custom fabrication of movie set pieces, museum exhibits and thematic elements for custom homes and commercial buildings as well as short-run-production woodworking projects.

About Us

 

The Spar Shop is a branch of Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) public development authority based in Aberdeen, Washington that operates the tall ships Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington, the Official Ship of the State of Washington. GHHSs mission is to provide educational, vocational, recreational and ambassadorial activities and experiences that promote and preserve the maritime history of Grays Harbor, the Pacific Northwest, and our nation while serving the needs of the community.
